My 95 GTI VR6 has about 60k on engine and 193 on tranny/car. It starts up great, but sometimes idles up and down in rpms while sitting still. It drives okay in lower speeds and shifts smoothly, but when I let off gas to coast, it lurches. When I push on the gas or depress the clutch, it goes away. Happens in 1st, 2nd, 3rd. I have only had the car for a few months and dont drive it much, but it didnt do that the first few weeks (it wasnt 90 to 100 degrees then either, in case thats a factor.) Everything else seems to be working fine. My thoughts go to a bad ECM / ECU, a leak in vacuum somewhere, or some Idle control valve, etc. Unfortunately, the hood cable is broken and cant get into engine to take a look.
